Salman Rushdie is one of the World’s most revered literary masters, with a Booker Prize and two Whitbread Awards among his accolades. His unique brand of magic realism is particularly effective in The Enchantress of Florence, the story of a European traveler and the extraordinary tale he shares with 16th-century Mughal emperor Akbar the Great. The traveler claims to be the son of a Mughal princess forgotten by time. If his tale is true, what happened to the princess? Download and start listening now!

    " Good story, well written. I listened to the audio book and the "performance" could have been better "

    " This was the first Salman Rushdie book I've read and although I've heard Midnight's Children was on of his best works, I may find it hard to pick up another one of his books. This was an extremely tedious read. I felt like it was all over the place and jumped from one plot and scene to another without much explanation. I also thought he tried to hard to make it sound like poetry which just made it a difficult read. "

    " This was the first book I've read of Salman Rushdie, and I'm sorry to say, it's likely to be my last. I couldn't follow the story, didn't really keep up with the characters, I was lost in different time periods. If he had family trees or other things in the book I may have kept up to date, but he kept losing me. So much for being enchanted! I just didn't get into the story or his writing style. Absolutely forgettable and a massive disappointment. "

    " I listened to this as a talking book. I would probably not finished it if I had read it. I found the names long and confusing which made it difficult to follow at times. The reader was quite flat. The twist at the end was quite good. "
